Taste of Win­ter of­fer­ing some­thing for ev­ery­one


Now that it’s ob­vi­ous that win­ter isn’t go­ing any­where soon, it’s time to fo­cus on the ac­tiv­i­ties of­fered by the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s Taste of Win­ter pro­gram.

There’s some­thing for ev­ery­one, says CBRM’s re­cre­ation pro­gram co-or­di­na­tor Joe Costello.

“It is im­por­tant that our res­i­dents feel there are op­tions for ac­tive liv­ing, out­door and in­door fun, and en­ter­tain­ing events hap­pen­ing in the win­ter,” said Costello. “We’ve de- signed Taste of Win­ter with ac­ces­si­bil­ity in mind while also look­ing at a di­verse set of ac­tiv­i­ties and neigh­bour­hoods as pos­si­ble.”

Events kicked off Sun­day, and con­tinue to­day at the Schooner Curl­ing Club in Whit­ney Pier for a learn-to-curl ses­sion at 7 p.m. open to any­one age 19 and older.

Old-fash­ioned wagon rides will be tak­ing place at Syd­ney’s Went­worth Park on Feb. 26 at 1 p.m., as well on March 24 at 6 p.m. and at Col­liery Land Park in New Wa­ter­ford on March 12 at 1 p.m. A se­niors so­cial will take place at the Syd­ney Mines Se­niors and Pen­sion­ers Club at 2 p.m., Feb. 28, at the Louis­bourg Fire­hall on March 14 at 2 p.m., and at Glace Bay’s Savoy Theatre on March 29 at 2 p.m.

The events run into March with the an­nual Louis­bourg Slush Run and Walk at 9 a.m., March 4, at Ge­orge D. Lewis School. Also that day, CBRM re­cre­ation will host a snow day on the Syd­ney wa­ter­front from 12-2 p.m.

On March 11, a ski bus will go by Cape Bre­ton Univer­sity, the wa­ter­front and Syd­ney on its way to Ski Ben Eoin.
